This was the year Rick Dyer and Matt Whitton made headlines by saying they had a dead Bigfoot in a freezer.
Back then Rick didn't believe Bigfoot was real and he had no regard for those who believe Bigfoot exists. Dyer didn't care who he hurt, or how much he hurt them. All Rick cares about is himself and money.
Thankfully Steve Kulls busted this hoax wide open before Ricky had a chance to carry on with his plan to make an autopsy video.
If you have not read Hall of Shame, you really should. Steve covers the 2008 hoax in depth on his page.
We all know Dyer has bragged endlessly about how much money he made from the 2008 hoax. He's a conman, a liar and a thief, nothing more.
You would think Dyer would take his lumps and leave for good but that wasn't the case. How unfortunate for us.
The very next year, in 2009, Rick tries the same thing. He makes wild claims of having a Bigfoot body (yes,another one) and press conferences. I guess Rick is under the impression that people have forgotten the 2008 Georgia freak show. I thought he would have at least changed his playbook a bit to "throw people off". Maybe Ricky Chuck thinks he's smarter than most "peoples".
Here is an old radio show of Freezer Boy's from 2009. Have a listen. Rick keeps accusing me of lying, twisting his words or telling half truths. These are things Rick usually comes back with when he knows he's been caught lying. This show is in his own words from 2009. he didn't say these things to "piss people off". He said these things to make more money.
Only two months prior to this radio show, Rick and Matt struck it rich again.
These guys reference the 2008 hoax as if it was a real event. Who are they trying to fool? I see they still have a news fetish, it's all about being super stars I suppose. Perhaps bright studio lights warm up their craniums enough to sustain them for another year until they can come up with another hoax.
The guys claimed there would be clear footage of a real Bigfoot. Does that sound familiar to anybody? It reminds me of 2012-13 a wee bit. Same old story with no results.
These two suck at hoaxing.
Things seem to settle down for awhile, and just when we thought he was gone for good, he pops back up in the Bigfoot community making another claim of sighting a real to goodness Bigfoot. Rick was in Florida in 2012 when he made this claim and he posted two photos of an alleged 60 that he had in his possession.
There is a short article here at The Crypto Crew showing the two photos. Back then nobody believed Rick either but he pushed it for a short time until he realized nobody was buying the story. Later on Rick claimed he was hoaxed by some people he trusted.
That's typical Rick Dyer style, blame other people for everything and accept no responsibility. He only takes credit for the 2008 hoax because it works to his advantage and he milks that one as often as he can. He still makes himself look like the victim though.
This brings us to the current dead Bigfoot hoax. Yes, I call it a hoax because Dyer's past history tells me it's a hoax. That's my opinion and it's not going to change.
I think most, if not all of us are painfully aware of this story that should have wrapped up a long time ago.
Ricky filmed what he says was a Bigfoot on Sept. 6/12 and he posts it under a false name. Before anyone knew it was Dyer, people were saying it was a hoax, but after Rick was identified as Dan Morgan, everybody agreed this was a hoax.
Not much was said after that until Freezer Boy said he shot one and killed it. When he can't get the attention he seeks, Rick will just make the story more interesting to see who bites.
To date, this is the only evidence Rick has provided, a short grainy video. No other evidence has been provided.
The documentary really can't be considered evidence because....well...there is none. The general consensus is the documentary was made to make fun of a bunch of hayseeds falling down in the woods.
All we really have is the story of Rick Dyer. We do have the account of Musky Allen, but the veracity of his story has also been called in to question because of his past history, or his sanitized statements.
Dyer believes the PG film is a hoax, yet he expects everyone to accept his video as fact because he said so. Every time Rick is asked for more evidence, he finds a reason for not being able to produce any. Once again poor Rick Dyer is the victim. It's out of his control or it's the fault of those other people. Rick won't say who these anonymous, or possibly fictitious people are.
Dyer has a problem with anonymous people but it's fine and dandy for Rick to have anonymous people doing this or that. There is always a double standard when it involves Rick Dyer.
Freezer Boy also has an issue with people who use aliases. Here's a prime example of the Dyer Double Standard:
This brings up another question. If Ricky has investors and doesn't need to work, why did he do roofing in Florida under a false name. Why is he constantly selling cars on eBay?
The old " I love cars" doesn't fly with me. I'm starting to wonder if Dyer has any legitimate investors because his story on that has changed as well.
Dyer's past personal history isn't lollipops and rainbows either. Rick has admitted to run ins with the law before, so it's no secret. But.....it wasn't his fault, there was a misunderstanding...in every single case. Of course Rick has not provided one piece of evidence to clear his name with anyone who actually cares.
Every employer, every law enforcement agency and every court takes a person's past in to consideration before hiring, firing, sentencing, etc. A person's past history shows exactly how that person conducts them self. If it walk like a duck and talks like a duck, it's a damned duck.
This really isn't a duck, it's more like a chicken.
A few people, including Rick says he's a changed man. Bullshit! He has not changed, not one tiny bit. He is the same manipulating, conniving liar and hoaxer he was back in 2008.
Rick talks the talk, but he has yet to walk the walk.
